The International Ankle Consortium released the 2019 consensus statement on the clinical assessment of acute lateral ankle sprains. The aim of this consensus process was to “to develop, based on expert consensus, recommendations for structured clinical assessment of acute lateral ankle sprain injuries. These recommendations should have a particular emphasis on impairments that are known to associate with chronic ankle instability.” The expert panel agreed there were five important considerations regarding diagnosis (e.g., mechanism of injury, weight-bearing status) and 10 important things to consider when evaluating mechanical and sensorimotor impairments (e.g., pain, range of motion).  Each of these key topics are discussed in the consensus statement.
